lol srry it happens to pre-96 cavies. the stock thermostat always goes bad. and the coils get moisture in them since they are almost at the bottom of the motor and they get water in them.

No. He is saying he thinks it is your thermostat (causing the overheating) and your coils having moisture in them (causing the no start).
